Raves & Rants: Live Tweeting

When I was on Twitter last night I was on the verge of screaming at my phone. As I scrolled through my feed I saw tweet after tweet of Scandal spoilers. It was as if everyone who watched the premiere was unaware that there are people in the world who plan to watch its second showing just a few hours later. And I don't feel this way about just Scandal. I don't even watch Scandal. I  don't like live tweeting for any popular show (i.e. Downton Abbey, Scandal, Pretty Little Liars, The Fosters). I don't feel this way, however, about reality tv. In fact, I am the one who will blow up your Twitter feed during a new episode of Real Housewives, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and Dance Moms. The idea of live tweeting is great; getting to interact with people who are watching the same things you are in real time. But for those of us who aren't watching and plan to later... Let's just say it makes for unhappy campers. 

How do you feel about live tweeting? God sent or God awful? Feel free to sound off in the comments section.
